Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 80552
AT keyboard not recognized
Last modified: 2008-01-17 12:49:42 EST
Description of problem:
After start of anaconda, the RedHat installer, my AT keyboard is not recognized
anymore. In the very first stage of the install it is, but after anaconda has
started, no keyboard input from any AT keyboard is being registered.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Just do it
Steps to Reproduce:
Same problem (firstname.lastname@example.org). I have a PS/2 keyboard (tried 2 different
keyboards) that gives the same problem. It works thru the CD tests, then
nothing. The motherboard is a Abit KT7.
Does it work in the second stage if you boot with 'linux text'?
I have tried several installation methods, including 'linux text', none of them
gave me a working AT keyboard.
Same result with linux text. The keyboard functions correctly with Windows 98,
2000, Redhat and even DOS 5 (Yes, I have a program that requires Windows 3.1)
that my wife uses and I haven't been able to get a good replacement.
Yes, I've experienced the same problem with my ps2 keyboard
(makes for a challenging fresh install)
Tried all the install methods as well.
PS: Noticed that it installed a usb mass storage driver.
Why I don't know.. I don't have one.. just thought
I'd mention it in the event there might be a relation.
Generic ps2 keyboard
logitech usb mouse
SOYO Dragon mobo

I modified my mouse configuration by putting the PS/2 adapter on my MS USB Wheel
Mouse and plugged it into the mouse PS/2 socket. Everything seems to have worked
as I was able to install the Beta.
